Wavy Ponytail

Ponytails are just for the gym right? Wrong! Perfecting the messy pony is an art; one we’re going to show you how to master! A great day to night look, the Wavy Ponytail is perfect for heading for festive drinks straight from the office.

Textured locks don’t just happen; you need to prep, prep, prep! Spritzing your hair with ghd root lift spray will give you the perfect base to finger-comb your hair back into an imperfect pony. Leaving a few sections loose at the front will frame the face and add to the messy look, whilst using the soft curl tong to wave the lengths will add volume and shape to the lengths.

For an effortless ‘I woke up like this’ look, follow our simple tutorial to achieve the ultimate Wavy Ponytail.
